On dusting cobwebs, taming zebras, and the glory of chai


Dusting off cobwebs.

Wow, it’s been a while.

Things have been busy. Children bound. Edits abound. And new characters for new stories whisper loudly demanding space in my moleskine while children build sandcastles and tame wild zebras in the backyard.

By day we bake.

He was NOT a fan of the cookies. Can you tell?

And bike.

And by night? I hole myself up, drink copious amounts of chai, and write my heart out.

Chai cup + favoritest animal ever = best gift ever. 

And well, between the writing, editing, and settling rambunctious debates about Important Matters between very small people, time to blog has not been as plentiful as I would like.

And I don’t like that.

It’s to be expected I guess. With all the offline writing, cobwebs in my online writing are perhaps only natural, but still, I miss this space. And I miss you. And this is a quick note to say I may not be as regular as I have been, but I’m around. You can find me on twitter most days, the ease of quickly communicating there is great even if its no substitute for this space and I hope to resume writing here again very soon because there’s so much filed away to share, like the topsy turvy curve balls on the road to homeschooling, a fantabulous recipe for Moroccan chicken [seriously, it’s the stuff of daydreams if one daydreams about food, which ahem, I might do from time-to-time], and thoughts on life in general as I’m prone to do. In the meantime, how are you? Do share. I hope you and yours are well.

  1. I'm glad you're well. Have assumed you're just (just!) crazy-busy, have hoped it was with good stuff, and it sounds like it is–so yay!

    Oh, PLEASE on the recipe for Moroccan chicken. Your pot roast recipe is in our regular rotation now–I like your taste in food. If you rave about it, I want to taste it!

    Glad you and yours are well & busy & happy. Is there anything better in life?
